Slides from OOP 2014 Online: Next-Generation BPM – How to create intelligent Business Processes thanks to Big Data

Posted in BPM on February 6th, 2014 by Kai Wähner

Just a short blog post with my slides from OOP 2014: Next-Generation BPM – How to create intelligent Business Processes thanks to Big Data.

Content

Business processes are often executed without access to relevant data because technical challenges occur when trying to integrate big masses of data from different sources into the BPM engine. Companies miss a huge opportunity here! This session shows how to achieve intelligent business processes to improve performance and outcomes by integrating big data – just with open source tooling.

Target Audience: Architects, Developers, Project Leader, Manager, Decision Makers
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge in a programming language, databases, and BPM concepts
Level: Introductory

Realtime Event Logging, Complex Event Processing (CEP) and Monitoring with Talend’s Unified Platform 5.4 (DI, ESB, DQ, MDM, BPM) using ElasticSearch, Logstash and Kibana

Posted in EAI, ESB on December 17th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

Your mission-critical projects need complex event processing, realtime management and monitoring. Talend 5.4 (released in December 2014, https://www.talend.com) offers a great new feature: Talend Event Logging. It allows logging, processing and monitoring of all technical events and business data. In this article, I will focus on how to process, filter and monitor business data. You can find more details about monitoring technical events and logs (e.g. OSGi events of the ESB container) in Talend’s documentation (www.help.talend.com). This new feature is very powerful, but also extendable to fit custom requirements. You can solve and monitor much more complex scenarios than the one I describe here.

Book Review: “Java EE 7 Developer Handbook” by PACKT / Pilgrim

Posted in Java / JEE on November 26th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

Java EE 7 Developer Handbook is a book for experienced Java developers, published by PACKT. Author is Peter A. Pilgrim.

Content
The books introduces many important Java EE 7 specifications: CDI, EJB, JPA, Servlets, JMS, Bean Validation, JAX-RS and some other stuff such as WebSockets, HTML5 support and Java Transaction API. Each chapter contains an introduction, source code examples and explanations of most important features and configurations. Source code examples can be downloaded, too.

Cool side note
Introduces and uses Gradle as build system and Arquillian for writing integration tests.

Slides online: “Enterprise Integration Patterns Revisited” – Talk at OBJEKTspektrum Information Days 2013

Posted in EAI, ESB on November 19th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

I had a brand new talk at OBJEKTspektrum Information Days 2013 in Frankfurt and Munich this week: Enterprise Integration Patterns Revisited. I wanna share my slides with you.

Content

Applications have to be integrated – no matter which programming languages, databases or infrastructures are used. However, the realization of integration scenarios is a complex and time-consuming task. Over 10 years ago, Enteprise Integration Patterns (EIP) became the world wide defacto standard for splitting huge, complex integration scenarios into smaller recurring problems. These patterns appear in almost every integration project.
This session revisits EIPs and gives shows status quo. After giving a short introduction with several examples, the audience will learn which EIPs still have a „right to exist“, and which new EIPs emerged in the meantime. The end of the session shows different frameworks and tools which already implement EIPs and therefore help the architect to reduce efforts a lot.

WJAX 2013 Slides online: Big Data beyond Apache Hadoop – How to integrate ALL your Data with Camel and Talend

Posted in Uncategorized on November 5th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

I just want to publish my updated slide deck from WJAX 2013 in Munich. I have integrated some real world use cases for showing Hadoop integration with Apache Camel and Talend Open Studio for Big Data.

JBoss OneDayTalk 2013: “NoSQL Integration with Apache Camel – MongoDB, CouchDB, Neo4j, Cassandra, HBase, Hazelcast, Riak, etc.”

Posted in EAI, ESB, Java / JEE on October 24th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

JBoss OneDayTalk is a great annual event around open source development. I have done a talk about “NoSQL Integration with Apache Camel”. This blog post shows you the updated slide deck of this talk.

Abstract

SQL cannot solve several problems emerging with big data. A distributed, fault-tolerant architecture is necessary. NoSQL comes to the rescue, but therefore it does not use SQL as its query language or give full ACID guarantees. Thus, in the future you will have to learn new concepts and integrate these NoSQL databases as you integrate SQL databasestoday. The open source integration framework Apache Camel is already prepared for this challenging task.

Yet another new Camel book: “Apache Camel Messaging Systems” (Danger of Confusion) – PACKT PUBLISHING

Posted in EAI on October 8th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

“Apache Camel Messaging System” is a new book (see http://www.packtpub.com/apache-camel-messaging-system/book) published on September, 25th, 2013 by PACKT PUBLISHING (ISBN: 9781782165347). Author is Evgeniy Sharapov. As it’s subtitle says, the book describes how to “tackle integration problems and learn practical ways to make data flow between your application and other systems using Apache Camel”.

Apache Camel is the best integration framework “on the market”. It has very good domain specific languages, many connectors, different companies behind it, and an awesome worldwide open source community. So, seeing a new book about Apache Camel is always good news!

How to choose the right Open Source Integration Framework – Apache Camel (JBoss, Talend), Spring Integration (Pivotal) or Mule ESB? – JavaOne 2013

Posted in EAI, ESB on September 25th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

Slides from my talk “How to choose the right Integration Framework” at JavaOne 2013, San Francisco, are online.

Abstract

Data exchanges between companies increase a lot. The number of applications which must be integrated increases, too. The interfaces use different technologies, protocols and data formats. Nevertheless, the integration of these applications shall be modeled in a standardized way, realized efficiently and supported by automatic tests.

Three integration frameworks are available in the JVM environment, which fulfil these requirements: Apache Camel, Spring Integration and Mule. They implement the well-known Enteprise Integration Patterns (EIP) and therefore offers a standardized, domain-specific language to integrate applications.

Slides online: “Big Data beyond Apache Hadoop – How to Integrate ALL your Data” – JavaOne 2013

Posted in EAI on September 25th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

Slides from my session ”Big Data beyond Apache Hadoop – How to Integrate ALL your Data” at JavaOne 2013 in San Francisco are online.

Abstract

Big data represents a significant paradigm shift in enterprise technology. Big data radically changes the nature of the data management profession as it introduces new concerns about the volume, velocity and variety of corporate data.
